EcoCork Insulation Boards provide excellent thermal and acoustic performance which make them highly suitable for external wall applications.
The use of 100% natural expanded cork boards on a building ensures maximum thermal insulation and a significant acoustic protection, simultaneously preserving the environment.
Natural and renewable (extracted from the cork-oak tree every 9 years), the cork supplied by Secil Argamassas in the LABC register Wall Insulation Systems is a breathable insulating material, free from any chemicals, synthetic resins or carcinogenic materials, which contributes for a healthy environment inside our homes. The cork's low thermal conductivity offers a high energy efficiency, thus contributing to an environmental and economic saving.
Cork Façade Boards - Façade cladding is available with special MDFACADE expanded insulation corkboard as an exterior wall finish, with the natural look for cork.
A higher density cork board with good compressive strength, the façade board provides a unique finished surface providing excellent thermal insulation and sound absorbing qualities. Externally it protects the building envelope as it acts as a rain screen; internally it helps to control humidity.
The cork façade board is applied onto a sound, level masonry/brick substrate with a full combed bed of ADHERE Vit lime adhesive. The board comes as standard flat face as well as in decorative shapes such as wave board.
